Sholing 1-0 Evesham United

Boatmen overcame a battling Evesham side and also the gale force wind to make it 4 wins in a row.  With 50mph gusts down the length of the pitch the whole game, flowing football was never going to be the winner. Conor Whiteley drilled in a low shot from the edge of the area on 63 mins to break the deadlock.  Conor had come closest to scoring in the first half with a 35 yard dipping freekick that was tipped onto the bar.  The woodwork denied Conor again in the second half, as it did Brad Targett, who chipped the keeper and saw his effort come back off the inside of the upright.  Evesham had a lot of possession, but Gosney was only tested a couple of times as the strong Sholing defence made it only 1 goal conceded in the last 5 games as we stay close on the heels of the league leaders - Match Report

Sholing 4-1 Mangotsfield United

Boatmen moved into second place in the league after a game where they got better the longer the match went on.  The visitors had the best of the first half, creating more than Sholing, but on 37 mins, Brad Targett headed in Cluett's freekick to put us ahead at the break.  Boatmen performed better in the second half, creating much more and took their chances. On 64mins, from a corner, a scramble ended with Conor Whiteley knocking in from close range.  5 minutes later and it was a third goal when Jake Hoole floated a 20 yard chip over the keeper and into the top corner.  Mangotsfield got a goal for their efforts on 83 mins, after which, Roundell hit the post, but in added time, Dan Mason beat several players, stayed on his feet and dinked the ball up for Stu Green to nod in to put the gloss on our 3 win in a week - Match Report

Larkhall Athletic 0-3 Sholing

An excellent performance was rewarded with a impressive win, inflicting Larkhall's first home league defeat of the season with Brad Targett grabbing a brace.  Brad put us ahead on 22 mins, latching onto a Dan Mason flick on to run through and finish. Boatmen could have had a couple more goals in the first half.  Boatmen didn't let the energy drop and played even better in a second half we dominated. Gosney, making his 300th appearance, didn't have a save to make as we peppered the home side goal. Owen Roundell recycled a corner and his ball into the box was smashed home by Brad Targett.  He could have had his hat-trick, denied by the keeper a couple of times, who also kept Dan Mason at bay, until D-Dan won a penalty and dispatched it for a deserved goal to move Sholing up to 3rd in the table - Match Report

Barnstaple Town 0-3 Sholing

Boatmen returned to winning ways with a win on the road at bottom of the table, Barnstaple Town.  The home side, who have shown an upturn in form in recent weeks, kept it goalless at half time, with Jake Cope denied by a terrific save onto the crossbar.  Sholing upped the tempo and broke through on 53 mins when Cope broke down the left wing and put over a great cross that was connected with by Joe Adams in the 6 yard box to score.  Adams was denied by a good save, Dan Mason had a goal ruled out for offside and then Cope had a shot cleared off the line.  Barnstaple had some late pressure with a succession of corners, but in added time, Jake Cope scored twice.  Firstly following up after Rob Nicholls shot was parried, then slotting home after being played in by D-Dan.  A welcome win and another clean sheet - Match Report

Sholing 0-0 Cinderford Town

A point and a clean sheet for the Boatmen after a game with little goalmouth action. Three players made their Sholing debut, Sami Makhoulfi, Tomasz Gruzewski & Josh Batt and Sami went closest to scoring in the first half, hitting the bar after cutting in from the right.  Second half saw both defences on top and Sholing had to play the last 10 mins a man down after Claudio was sent off after a 50/50 tackle where he appeared to get the ball - Match Report
